    Default Ventilation search?

    Hi, I am currently a student and am trying to get my fire science. I was wondering if any one knew of a web site or any place I could find information on the history of firefighting techniques. I am having a little trouble with my search. I am particularly interested in ventilation and how and when it came to be apart of the fire service.

    I am a newbie to this site and just in case this has already been asked could someone please let me know how to do a search in the forum? Thanks a lot for any and all help, it is greatly appreciated.

    Are you looking for online or print sources? I can't remember the names, but there are many books that cover historical aspects of the fire service. While they may not get technical enough to cover techniques, the old photos cast a lot of light on how things were done. I think you'll find that ventilation was an early practice as it didn't take much more than simple observation to figure out that it was beneficial. The techniques and tactics underwent considerable evolution however!
